Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a slightly clear gold/yellow body with a one finger white foamy head, streams of carbonation are seen rising at a moderate pace, some clingy lacing sticks to the pint glass throughout the entire drink. The smell had a strong citrusy hops up front, a slight amount of caramel and bread follow up as it warms. The taste was bittersweet all the way down, wow! slight bittersweet aftertaste, crisp yet smooth finish. On the palate, it was light, sessionable, carbonated exactly the way it should be, smooth all around. Overall, wow, what a nice APA, I can’t believe I’ve passed up on this so many times and now I’ve finally had it and am kicking myself for not having it sooner.

Aroma is fine, some citrus hop notes. No malt. The mouthfeel is clean with an aggressive hop finish. The flavor is dominated by hops and the beer has a pleasant hops citrus flavor but a harsh hops finish. I would expect a Pale ale to be more balanced. This should not taste like an IPA.

A typical American Pale Ale; not too bitter or hoppy. Floral aroma, smooth finish, clear dark blond. - March Madness 2014

This is a fine example of a American pale ale. Hoppy, but light and not overpowering. It would be good in the summer months when you need to battle the oppressive heat. Watch the review: http://teamchug.com/?p=791

A modern American pale ale: hoppy with a high ABV. More substantial than I expected, almost an amber or copper ale. Bitter flavor with citrus and some subtle notes of grass, hay, and cereal malt.

Pours straw with a lacing white head. Aroma of pine, hops, and citrus. Aroma of the same, sweet malts, citrus, mild fruityness. Good.

Bottle-love this beer. Has a slight hoppiness to it but not overwhelming. Would drink this any time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fresh 12oz Bottle at home - Dogtown Pale has everything that I’m looking for in a American Pale Ale. It has dry citrus hops upfront, sweet malts and piney bittering hops in the back. Dogtown is bright and crisp, well balance and full of hop goodness! Classic American Pale Ale.
